I know someone posted another site a while ago but I don't remember what it was. I've just been using http://mapmyfitness.ninemsn.com.au/default.aspx
Okay, so I have a confession to make. You know it gets tempting to try and take shortcuts with weightloss and I should've known better but I went and bought some diet pills last Friday. I know they keep me awake and I know they never do anything but still I got some. Needless to say I have barely been able to sleep, since Sunday I haven't had any energy to get out and exercise as I was so tired when I got home from work, my appetite was insatiable and I couldn't stop eating all day Monday and Tuesday, I was shaking by the time I got home because I needed to eat something and I have been severely depressed and feeling like my life is miserable and pointless.
Anyway, I haven't had any since Tuesday and today I am feeling so much better. My energy levels are back up and I am feeling so much more positive. Last night I went out for a walk after work and tonight I worked out at home. I am posting this to remind myself the next time I am tempted that diet pills do not agree with me, mentally and physically. I feel like a cloud has been lifted.
So yesterday I saw a friend at work and she remarked on how good I was looking, I guess I see myself in the mirror everyday so I haven't noticed the gradual loss except for my clothes fitting better and when I see people that I haven't seen for a while they tell me there's a big difference. Today I threw on a shirt I haven't worn in a few weeks and it wasn't until I saw myself in the mirror at work that I realised it's too big for me now. I had a really good day today and just felt happier overall, a girl walked over to me after a meeting this morning just to tell me I looked really pretty today, it was so sweet it made my day and then I got a call this afternoon to tell me that I'd won another award at work. I was in disbelief as I only just won the annual award and I'm a little embarassed to be getting another. I am getting a $250 coles myer voucher for the award and I am thinking I'd really like to spend it on gifts for a few people at work who always help me out and support me.
So if you've happened to get to this point of my post without falling asleep, any ideas on what to get people for around $60 would be welcomed (I have 4 people I want to get something for) - two men and two women. One of the girls has high blood pressure and high cholesterol and the other is on weight watchers so chocolates are definitely out of the question.
